- View EPC Rating
With elevations of stone and brick under a pitch tiled roof, this delightful cottage is very much a jewel in the heart of this superb village. With a wealth of character running throughout, this charming property has undergone extensive refurbishment in recent history to create a truly wonderful space to enjoy.
The cottage itself has spacious accommodation over two floors with generous room sizes, not obviously apparent from the modest cottage frontage. The sitting room is set at the front of the home and has an inset Villager stove set into one wall, a nice focal point for the room and stairs rise from the room to the first floor landing.
The dining room is set centrally and flows through from the sitting room. With attractive oak flooring there is another inset Villager stove.
The kitchen opens onto the garden and has an range of dark wood effect kitchen units under a granite effect worktop with a host of integrated appliances, including an electric cooker with ceramic hob over and space and connection for 2 domestic appliances. Set off the kitchen is a down stairs cloakroom.
Rising to the first floor, there are two large double bedrooms, both with attractive wooden flooring, the one to the rear of the property with an feature fireplace to one wall and a fitted wardrobe.
The shower room has recently been refurbished to a high standard and has a walk in shower, W/C and hand basin, all with attractive rose gold fittings.
The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of this lovely cottage, measuring approx. 140ft and backing onto the lane to the rear of Church Street, accessed from The Rank. Double opening gates lead to a substantial parking and turning area, laid to gravel which leads to a large and versatile workroom/summerhouse.
The garden narrows slightly back towards to the rear of the cottage, laid to lawn with a raised decking area and brick storage shed. Steps lead down to a large patio, ideal for enjoying sunny summer evenings.
It is not hard to understand why Maiden Newton is a village held in high regard. It would be difficult to find a more suitable setting with Longleat, Centre Parcs, Stourhead and King Alfreds Tower all on the doorstep. The Cities of Bath and Salisbury are within 40 minutes. Main line stations at Castle Cary or Gillingham and the A303 all a short drive away. The village has an active community spirit and a mix of all ages occupy the many pretty period properties. Local amenities include public house, church and village hall and the towns of Warminster and Frome are approximately 7 miles distant and both offer excellent shopping and rail links.
Schooling within the area is excellent and includes the highly regarded Port Regis, Leweston and Sherborne, St Mary's at Shaftesbury, Warminster and Sexey's School and Kings School at Bruton. Maiden Bradley is set within the West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the surrounding countryside offers superb walking and riding. The River Wylye rises just below the village and is highly prized for its clear waters and excellent fishing. Other sporting pursuits are well catered for within the area including golf at Warminster and Frome. Nearby, Shearwater Lake offers fishing and sailing and is a haven for wildlife, offering excellent birdwatching.
